Progressives to meet

Miguel del Valle and Delmarie Cobb are calling a meeting of local progressives Saturday to assess the new political situation, which seems to be shifting daily. It’s Saturday, October 15, 2 p.m., a NEIU’s Center for Inner City Studies, 700 E. Oakwood.

A panel discussion will feature Ben Joravsky of the Chicago Reader, Toussaint Losier of the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign, Phil Jackson of the Black Star Project, and electoral organizer Rebecca Reynolds.

“The political landscape in Chicago has shifted beneath our feet in the past year,” del Valle told Extra. “Progressives–those who believe in and work for progress for all Chicagoans–must now look around at our new circumstances and reevaluate.

“What are our biggest challenges–both as a movement, and as a city? How can we ensure that our voices are heard, louder than ever, in the halls of power? Those are the questions we hope to address at the forum on October 15.”
